The front door on your home is normally one of the first things seen from the street and can add instant value and nice contrasting colors to your home for a small price


Our process for painting your front door as follows

#3 Scuff sand and repair as needed

#4 Mask off jamb, hinges and around door

#5 Spray light first coat with a fine finish sprayer

#7 Let dry, put hardware back on, take off masking and clean up



Things that may increase price


Damaged doors that need extra work

If door needs to be primed first
